Wedding Date Rescue by Sonya Weiss Blog Tour

There is no faking the spark between them…



WEDDING DATE RESCUE

Fire and Sparks #1

Sonya Weiss

Releasing Feb 27, 2017

Entangled BLISS

As a

Firefighter, Kent Wakefield has been burned before, and not just by fire. So

when Casey Bradford, his best friend’s off-limits, gorgeous little sister, asks

him to be her fake boyfriend, he flat out refuses. He doesn’t do relationships,

real or otherwise. But when his well-meaning, marriage-pushing mother corners

him about his cousin’s wedding, he panics and tells her he has a date.

After being

left at the altar, Casey is out of options. She needs a boyfriend ASAP or she

can kiss her dreams good-bye. Who better than her brother’s

emotionally-unavailable best friend, Kent. She may have nursed a childhood

crush, but this arrangement will be purely platonic…that is until he kisses

her and suddenly it gets a lot harder to remember it’s all pretend.


From the

time she was a child, Sonya knew she was destined to be a writer. If she didn’t

like the ending of a book or movie, she would write her own ending. When her

children were young, she often wrote stories to entertain them. At the urging

of one of her daughters, she submitted a short story and to her surprise and

delight, it sold.  Sonya loves writing

all things romance whether it’s writing contemporary adult or teen fiction and

still hasn’t lost the wonder that she gets to do what she loves.   She enjoys reading, movies, chocolate, and

laughter and credits her daughters as being the sweetest blessings in her life.

Two of Scottish romance’s most loved authors have joined pens to write a thrilling new time travel series filled with passion, danger, and intrigue. These never-before-published novels will sweep you to Scotland’s Highland Heatheredge, where magic is real, time is relevant, and there is no escape from desire…

Men are disappearing in the Highland crofting village of Heatheredge. The authorities suspect foul play, but without signs of violence—or bodies—they can’t prove a thing.

World champion swordsman Cailean Ross is living the fantasy of a lifetime as the victor of Heatheredge’s medieval reenactment Gathering. But when the fantasy turns into reality, swordplay becomes a fight to the death and he finds himself among the ‘missing’ statistics.

Julianna Mackay flees a man she fears is an evil wizard and literally runs into handsome Cailean Ross. Cailean defends Lady Julianna from her attackers. Together, they set out in search of the key to a six-hundred-year-old curse that can only be broken in medieval Scotland.

When the veil of time is lifted, Cailean and Julianna find that love may not be enough to save them or those they hold dear.

Exclusive Excerpt

I wait for him here at the place where the night sky and the earth become lovers. In the tall grass of our homeland, between two kingdoms, we meet.

Getting here early is easier than slipping away late, especially now when life in my village is bustling with the preparations for our wedding in just three days.

But as the reeds lick the backs of my calves, I know that this is only one part of the reason I wait.

The truth is that I like to feel him coming. At this hour, when my imagination reigns over every shape and whisper, I can almost see him walking on limbs taller and stronger than mine will ever be. He cuts through the night that hides his slightly lighter shade and stalks his prey. I cannot hear his approach, but I feel him drawing near, compelled by the same force that holds me where I stand—the scent of my desire in the air.

I close my eyes and breathe deeply, imagining I can taste him, too. The flavor is salt, sweet grass, and home. It fills my senses and makes me thirsty.

On the outside, my knees shake and my heart pounds, impatient for its mate, while the deepest part of me grows calm and still—stretching towards the peace that only his presence brings.

And he’s close now, so close.

Excerpt

Part I: 

In The Beginning 

1754 ~ Gold Coast, Ghana 


I wait for him here at the place where the night sky and the earth become lovers. In the tall grass of our homeland, between two kingdoms, we meet. 


Getting here early is easier than slipping away late, especially now when life in my village is bustling with the preparations for our wedding in just three days. 


But as the reeds lick the backs of my calves, I know that this is only one part of the reason I wait. 


The truth is that I like to feel him coming. At this hour, when my imagination reigns over every shape and whisper, I can almost see him walking on limbs taller and stronger than mine will ever be. He cuts through the night that hides his slightly lighter shade and stalks his prey. I cannot hear his approach, but I feel him drawing near, compelled by the same force that holds me where I stand—the scent of my desire in the air. 


I close my eyes and breathe deeply, imagining I can taste him, too. The flavor is salt, sweet grass, and home. It fills my senses and makes me thirsty. 


On the outside, my knees shake and my heart pounds, impatient for its mate, while the deepest part of me grows calm and still—stretching towards the peace that only his presence brings. 

And he’s close now, so close. 


*** 


When we were children, Ekow was such a scrawny thing. I used to like to wrestle him just to beat him, just to prove that I could. I was young, determined and more than a little jealous of the physical prowess of my older brothers. Secretly, I wanted to be like them, but my youngest brother, Kofi, was already 10 years my senior by the time I could walk. With Ekow, I knew I’d finally found a way to prove that no boy could match me. 


My laughter rumbles in the stillness as I think of it. Oh, how angry he would be every time I beat him! And in the beginning, there were many, many times when I did. He would get so upset that his ears would twitch. He would stomp away from his defeat with his hands balled up in knobby little fists—eyes glaring, ears twitching, while one of our elders cackled nearby with me sticking out my tongue. 

We didn’t see each other often enough for me to beat him every day, but I looked forward to it whenever I could. I was always stronger than I looked, and even when he grew a little taller than me, his limbs seemed to flail awkwardly about him so that he was never quite coordinated. And in my delicious reign as his tormentor, time seemed to stretch on forever, until one day, it stopped. 


I remember the sun burned low in the sky that day as the dust and amber light conspired against me in swirling fits that stung my eyes. Rolling around on the ground, I was shocked to find myself panting for air. Suddenly, his legs overpowered me. I couldn’t throw him the way I had been able to before. His grip was a vice that I had to sweat to free myself from, and even then, he could catch me again, quickly—too quickly for my liking. 


Unable to break free, I grunted and cursed as he pinned me down on my back. At first, I refused to meet his gaze. Beneath my eyelashes, I could swear I saw my own taunting smirk, the same one I had given him year after year, curling the corners of his lips. Enraged, I shut my eyes and kicked my legs furiously, all to no avail. I could feel the muscles of his powerful thighs holding me in place without the slightest indication of strain, and I couldn’t stand it. 


As if sensing the scream that would send my brothers flying to my aid, he suddenly lifted his body from mine, then leaned over to adjust his grip so that our hands were 

stretched out above my head, palm to palm, fingers intertwined in the grass and the dirt beneath us. 


How did I not know, even then . . . ? 


Something about the gesture was so strange that it distracted me from my fury. The feel of his hands pressed firmly into mine made my stomach flutter and clench in a way that was startling, but not unpleasant. 


“Ama,” he called. “Ama, don’t scream. Ama, please, surrender.” 


It must have been the “surrender” that made my eyes fly open to meet his in absolute indignation. 


Sometimes I like to think that if I’d never opened my eyes, it never would have happened, but this is, of course, foolish. I was meant to see. 


I looked up to find him staring down at me. The smirk I’d feared was nowhere in sight. 

Instead, his eyes held the same wariness I felt as I looked back at him, then quickly dissolved into something I’d never seen in him before. 


He eyed my mouth with what I understand now as a mixture of surprise and captivation. Back then, I still had no idea what was happening, but as his gaze lingered, I began to feel that someone was seeing me truly for the first time in my life. I remember fighting the nameless emotion that closed my throat and pricked my eyes. 


“Ama, surrender,” he whispered, “Please.” 

And that’s when I understood that I held him in place as much as he held me. 


“Please,” he said again, and I finally realized what I needed to do all along. 

Seeing the answer there in my eyes, he released my hands and rose to his feet. I remember averting my eyes against the sudden rush of loneliness that came as he left. But at the corner of my vision, I saw it, his hand extended out to help me up. He’d done it before, even as I beat him and he’d risen in defeat while I remained holding my belly in victorious laughter on the ground. I’d always ignored the gesture until that moment, when suddenly it felt like the most natural thing in the world to accept his help. 


When I finally stood, I noticed for the first time that he’d grown at least 10 inches since the last time I saw him. 


Despite my daze, I frowned. “You’re taller than me,” I said in dismay. 


“No, Ama,” he replied. Ekow’s voice was deep, yet gentle as he stepped forward to take my other hand in his. “Now, we are exactly the same height.” 


I was 11 years old; Ekow was 13, and after that, nothing between us was ever the same.
